Neptune in Virgo

THOSE having Neptune in Virgo have a tense, almost occult, critical power and ability to visualize and measure accurately events, substances and forces not then before the physical eye. This clairvoyant materialism is a tremendously active force in strong nativities; it gives the man almost uncanny knowledge of material events. 

This was the major power of Napoleon's mind; he had this position of Neptune. It endowed him with marvelous physical foresight and an almost psychic knowledge of men and events. It gave him, as well, a practical, sound, law-giving wisdom, out of which grew some of the most potent forces of France. Yet, because of this very power of occult materialism and lack of spiritual vision, he doubtless met his downfall. He lost that higher guidance which alone gives enduring success and enduring wisdom. 

Neptune in Virgo is a good position for the artist and scientist, since it gives such wonderful penetration into matter. Thus Humbolt and Humphrey Davy, owe much of their keen, rational perception to this position, while J. M. W. Turner, Coleridge and Beethoven are exemplifications of its power in the arts. 

An afflicted Neptune in Virgo gives a cunning will, and lack of conscience and makes one destructively critical. 

Alexander I of Russia, Hymboldt, John Quincy Adams, Bolivar, Jane Austen, Beethoven, Humphrey Davy, Lord Brougham, Napoleon, {489) Turner, Coleridge and Wordsworth, are all examples of persons of note who had Neptune in this position.
